In a month or so I will need to make a very important decision. I can either go back to school and do Masters in Finance or I can get a professional certification.
I am currently living and working in Denmark, however my ultimate goal is to be able to work in Germany in finance industry. Ultimately, I want to become a compliance officer (currently working in the compliance section). I'm already 29 years old, so if I want to do masters it is the last chance.
On the other hand I have a well paid job with prospects to increase my salary. I am very concerned but I cannot help it but wish to go and study in Germany.
Is a certificate and work experience more important/relevant than masters degree given my aim to work in the German financial industry? Perhaps pursuing a masters along a part time job is also viable?
